So i have a confession to make: i really do not like DIY’s. I would rather “throw money at the problem” and call it one and done. So let me just say- any DIY that I recommend probably just barely qualifies as a DIY, but whatever. Having bug spray that doesn’t seep chemicals and crap into my babies skin and my families skin pushed me over the edge to muster up the 5 minutes that this DIY takes! This toxin-free bug spray that you can safely use even on your littles is worth gathering up the two supplies off Amazon prime. And sidenote: if doing a 2 minute DIY makes you cringe, Young Living sells amazing Bug Repellant wipes ? I just prefer a spray and find this recipe to be super easy and it smells amazing too! The other tip is there are room spray recipes, sleepy sheet recipes, and hand sanitizer recipes you can repurpose with the same leftover 3 oz spray bottles and witch hazel! so its budget friendly. Anyway, I regress.

hiking the jungles of hawaii bite-free!

I first tried this bug spray recipe out when my oldest, Zeke, was 3 months old and we traveled to Hawaii for a summer vacation. I was so worried about him getting bit in the jungles of Hawaii because if he is anything like his mama, our blood is sweet and we just attract those mosquitos!

This recipe did the trick, and we have used this ever since for family vacations, camping trips, and outdoor summer fun! I used the bug spray on cute baby his legs (everything else was covered) and sprayed my husband and myself head to toe. NONE of us got bit a single time in spite of seeing mosquitos throughout the entire hike! WINNING! As always: I only use and trust Young Living therapeutic grade oils because of the quality and the way they process and distill! you can read more about that by going to if you’re a researcher; but if you’re like me, you just go off of what you experience works from companies you trust!

Keep this handy in your travel bag or hiking backpack and you can thank me later ?
